obama's proposal for a tax credit for companies bringing manufacturing back or invest back in the united states and in communities and create jobs and propose a 20% tax credit for those companies. people say why don't you just cut the corporate tax rate across the board, and my argument to that, i guess, the gentleman left, is that i don't think right now with the deficit that either my law firm or investment banks in wall street need the corporate tax cuts. target the corporate tax cuts to areas that are engines of economic growth, and so i'm sympathetic to tax incentives if they can be tied to accountability for companies to actually invest in other communities and create jobs. next question? >> talking about tax incentives, on the other side, won't it be okay to peoplize too many -- or, i guess that's not quite the right word, but to have, you know, to tax the import for that discourages imports and encourages the locals manufacturing? >> well, that's a big debate about how much protectionism we should have as a country. i mean, my view is that if the competition is there, i think ame
demagoguery from the seventies to obama." she talks to guests and signs books at americans for tax reform here in washington. this is about 20 minutes. >> he ordered his on amazon. spent how are you? are we going to sign that later? okay. hello. hello. thanks for coming. >> thanks for writing the book. >> nice to meet you. hello. hello. spent nice to meet you. >> gary johnson? no, no, no, no. you've got to be a romney girl now. >> how are you? good to see you. >> my own newspaper held me over and i was explaining, it's rude to lose your watch in the middle of an interview. it's like a half hour later. spent do you know brian? >> i haven't seen in such a long time. why wouldn't you have me on? we are? that's great, that's great because i will be in new york for that. hello. i will see you later. that was good. do you know who it is dedicated to? >> no. >> it's a crackerjack surprise inside. has your husband read it yet? spent he's busy. leave him alone. >> he changed his e-mail address on the, by the way. spent i don't know what your e-mail is. >> both of you change your e-mail address on it. i
. so to president obama, congratulations on your tax rate increase. you fought hard and you won. i hope i have the courage of my convictions not to raise the debt ceiling until you and others will work with me to find a plan to begin to get us out of debt. so you mentioned medicare today in your speech. i'm glad you did. in 2024, it completely becomes insolvent. think of how many people in this country need medicare and will need it 20 years from now. if we don't do something, it's going to run out of money. the age of eligibility for medicare recipients is 65. it hasn't changed one day since 1965 when it was first started. we're all living longer. i propose we adjust the retirement age to 67 over a 10 or 20-year period. that will save the program in many ways. people in my income level, we shouldn't get any money from the government to help buy my prescription drugs. i should pay the full cost because i can afford to. that's called means testing. and this c.p.i. thing you hear a lot about, that's how you evaluate benefits. it needs to be re-evaluated based on real inflation. we're over
taxes. i give obama credit for this. i have never seen anybody better at finding trivial distractions in order to avoid responsibility. [laughter] [applause] let my say to give you a 2012 variation on ronald reagan's 19 75 bold colors. obama light is not a winning formula for the republican party. [applause] let's start with how the media operates. they operate in collaboration with the white house first to create panic. you run off the fiscal cliff unless you are insane and do what told. you are a bad person asking why is there a face call cliff. will america will be different on january 2nd if we hold our bleat and see what happens? second. you then go to distractions. the current distractions is grover norquist. i have known grover norquist for a long time. i think he's a fine person. he hold know elective office. and in fact, he wasn't elected president. he is the president of united states who is responsibility for figuring how to solve our problems who is not offered a single serious cost consulting measure. tell me what you think barack obama is going to go to the house and sen
on increasing taxes, that we shouldn't do that. you know what obama said three days after a point to listen to you, especially when they disagree? he said i want come at you last time i trump on that. a week later he said i want the folks who got us in this mess to do a whole lot less talking and a lot more listening. you can talk a little bit, but i want you to stand beside mine while we clean this up for you. unbelievable, condescending notion of unifying the country and bringing us together. instead, there came the steady mantra of attack and vilify the other side. no ideas. it was just like his 2008 campaign for president was not idea of the spirit is hope and change, lofty speeches with no substance with the letter. he was going to be the post-partisan president and yet almost immediately it was conservatives are hostage takers. they are the economy. they care only about millionaires and billionaires are not children with autism and down syndrome. now what does this approach? why did obama and his administration common wanting to vilify the other side with his intense hatred? it was br
media have magically gotten the republicans into an argument over taxes. and then, and i give obama great credit for this, i have never seen anybody better at finding trivial distractions in order to avoid responsibility. [laughter] [applause] and let me say to give you a 2012 variation on ronald reagan's 1975 bold colors, no pale pastels, obama light is not a winning formula for the republican party. [applause] so let's start with how the media operates. the media operates in collaboration with the white house first to create panic. you're going to run off the fiscal cliff unless you're totally insane and do exactly what we're told to do and, therefore, you're a bad person if you ask the question why is there a fiscal cliff, and will america be dramatically different on january 2nd if, in fact, we just hold our breath and see what happens. second, you then go to distraction. the current distraction is grover norquist. now, i've known grover norquist for a long time. i think he's a fine person. he holds no elective office and, in fact, he wasn't elected president. so the president o
for doing that. and i wrote a piece called "if you can't beat 'em, tax 'em." so you decide, is president obama pro-science? or is he just another politician? now, now the really fun stuff. you guys are isolated. i always think d.c. is kind of a reasonable city in a lot of ways because it's kind of, you know, it's near virginia, it's kind of in the south, a lot of good hometown valuings. come out to the left coast sometime. [laughter] come out to the west, and you'll see a whole different set of values. so i live in seattle, i've been to portland frequently, and i love san francisco, and these are all great cities. are they bastions of good science policy? so in seattle what we called snowmageddon, december of 2008 we had a big snowstorm. heaven forbid, you don't use salt in seattle because that's bad for the environment. particularly, they said, it was bad for puget sound. it's a saltwater estuary. so adding a little bit of salt to a saltwater estuary, probably okay. the salmon will be all right. [laughter] instead, instead you take plows, and you pack down the snow and sprinkle sand on
and the tea party really knocked barack obama for a loop and took control of the house and everything happened after that. the tax cut deal, big fights over the budget and the debt ceiling and deficit reduction and also the bin laden grade and reagan but happened in egypt and libya. so i'm looking at how obama made the decisions he made and why he took the actions he took in that very perilous time politically would also explain how this is all done in a way to set up the 2012 campaign that we just went through. he had a theory indy to do big hit in 2010, yet the theory that he could make the 2012 race a choice not just between him and mitt romney but a choice between different ideologies and different approaches to government and values. everything he did in that timeframe he kept trying to tether to this big idea. when i wrote the book of course we didn't know how things were going to end up on november 6, 2012. i looked at how he developed his governing strategy and electoral strategy and it really dominated. this is the back story to what happened with this presidential campaign. >> david
obama for a loop and took control of the house, and then everything that happened after that. the tax cut deal, the big fights over the budget and the debt ceiling and deficit reduction, also the bin laden raid and what happened in egypt and libya. and so i'm looking at how obama made the decisions he made and took, and why he took the actions he took in that very perilous time politically, but also explain how this is all done in a way to set up the 2012 campaign that we just went through. he had a theoryf
a simpler, fairer tax code that will help our economy grow. president obama, however, has a different view, so we're forced to find common ground, and in this case that means extending the tax rates that we can to help as many americans as possible avoid higher taxes. we also need to fully address sequestration. sequestration involves automatic spending cuts. those spending cuts hit the military disproportionately, and i believe they need to be revised, but the pressure to do that kicks in after january 1, and i believe that that pressure will serve as a catalyst for congress to come up with and pass better alternatives. also, we must address the debt ceiling, and it must be addressed in a way that reduces spending. we have no choice. we're borrowing 40 cents of every dollar that we spend, and that is simply not sustainable. but again, we have got to break the current logjam, and if we can't get all of these things done in one package, then let's get started with what we can do. let's get this tax piece done for as many working taxpayers as possible and immediately move on to the next task
